Let’s plan that European vacation this Summer with a handy smartphone; shall we?
This restaurant app is great for France, Spain, Belgium, Portugal, Sweden, Switzerland and Italy. Book your table and receive an immediate confirmation of your booking and they also offer some excellent discounts. You can read the reviews, check out the photos, menu and it also has a map to lead you to your destination. So it’s Europe’s version of our very own Zomato minus delivery.
2.Currency- XE Currency
Well I love to shop but the Math is boggling…calculating those Euros and British pound to INR before making any purchase is so very exhausting. So well let XE Currency Converter do that for you. Downlaod the app and make life simpler while ordering food or shopping.
While I am a personal fan of Skyscanner for best flight deals but in Europe trains, taxis and buses are frequent modes of travel between countries and GoEuro offers all these in one app. Do check out all different modes and specially the Euro rail before transiting across countries.
4.Language- Google Translator
It supports visual translation. Point your smartphone camera at some text and its English translation appears on-screen. Visual translation currently supports French, Italian and German. Android phones are supported by offline translation.
Undisputedly the best for stay options from chic city apartments to cheaper studio apartments- you will get it all in one travel app and it works well across Europe. Do read up our exciting new blog on a Greece trip from India.
